SUMMARY:

During an investigation into massage parlors in the Buffalo, New York area, law enforcement picked up a woman (Yingji Jin, aged 45), who they thought was a victim outside the Hong Kong Acupressure in Amherst, New York. During questioning it became apparent that the defendant might help to run the massage parlor. Eventually, the defendant, an undocumented Chinese woman, took a plea bargain in exchange for the government dropping the trafficking charges.

Three other women were arrested in the same operation: Gho Mei Zi (aged 43), Yang-Shu Liang (aged 43), both who resided at the address listed for the massage parlor, and Choon Ja Yun. Choon Ja Yun was charged with promoting prostitution and operating a sex business within 1,000 feet of a school or church. Chun-h-Jeong, the owner of the massage parlor, was also arrested.
